Warm Dill Potato Salad

Everyone who tries this warm potato salad is delighted. It’s simple to make, and a nice change of pace from other potato salads. A friend gave me the recipe a long time ago, and we’ve been enjoying it ever since.

    Had to come back and say, that the chilled leftovers were even better than the fresh warm salad. YUM!

    We really liked this recipe. Having it warm really made a difference! I added more salt and some chopped dill pickles. BUT - I don't think I would always make warm potato salad!

    I've been making this potato salad for years and my recipe came from Better Homes and Gardens "Casserole Cook Book" published in 1968. I use 4 cups of the cubed potatoes and serve it with b-sauced ribs - all year long!
